Bottle gifted by Chaney. Thanks Brandon. The beer appears orange to brown hued. A fine color for an autumn beer. The aroma brings pumpkin right up front, followed by cinnamon, nutmeg, pie, vanilla, malt. The flavor is great, with flavors of pumpkin pie, vanilla, and Fall spices. A bit sweet, but not too. Certainly one of the better pumpkin ales I have had. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-06-2012

Cloudy deep orange pour with brown tint ... very light off white head very sweet and pumpkin spice with light pie crust in the aroma ... taste is very sweet and spicy lots of sugar and pumpkin spice in this one mostly cinnamon and some clove that lingers into the finish ... not a bad pumpkin brew if you like the sweeter side

12oz bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours clear dark amber with a 2 finger thick beige head. The nose is pumpkin, spice and malt. The taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, candied fruit and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is great Ė thick and creamy. Nice Pumpkin Beer. Not as good as Southern Tier Pumking, but itís up there and the mouthfeel is better. Thanks for sending this my way Dan!

acquired this in a trade. Shared with friends in a Hill Farmstead glass.

A - 1/4 Finger head. The beer is a dark leather with pumpkin appearance sort of an off orange appearance.

S - Pumpkin pie, spices, whip cream and milk.

T - Pumpkin spices, canned pumpkin puree and milk. Very weak taste compared to the amazing smell.

M - 80% carbonation, light bodied

O - Itís a good beer. Maybe better fresh but overall, tasty and worth the trade.

Really nice pumpkin beer here. The flavor is very nicely balanced with a good sweetness to compliment the spice profile which isnt overdone. Really one of the best of the style.

09/28/2013. Sampled at a local tasting. Amber color with a white head. Aromas of malt, spice, pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon flavors. Good if youíre into this style of beer, but not my kind.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Dan. Thanks. Pours a translucent copper color with a very small white head that immediately dissipates. The aroma is big and bold with pumpkin, cloves, and allspice. The flavor is similar to the nose, lots of spicy pumpkin set in a biscuit malt base. The palate was just a bit thinner than I would prefer and the carbonation was soft. Finished long with lingering cloves. Overall: One of the best pumpkin ales, this is a real treat. Thanks again.

Courtesy of rayl101. Hazy amber, mahogany, no head. Aroma has nice combo of pumpkin, spice, back-end sweetness. Flavor much the same, spice tends to take over, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Mouthfeel is a little slick, could use more carbonation.

One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve tasted so far! This offering pours a light amber color with a small off-white head. The head doesnít leave much lacing around the glass, though. I got a ton of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg in the nose. The body was extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors were really delicious, with notes of pumpkin pie, pie crust, toasted bread, nutmug, cinnamon and a good amount of sweet maltiness. This really was like eating a slice of pumpkin pie. Iíve tasted a lot of other pumpkin ales, but this one wasnít so heavy on the pumpkin or the spices. The balance of the flavors was just right. Williamsburgís was more balanced and more well-rounded than a lot of others Iíve sampled. If you get the chance, try this pumpkin beer this fall. You wonít be disappointed.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 6, 2011
Copper with a white head. Medium, fairly smooth body. Aroma has light pumpkin and a decent helping of pie spice, with light toasty malts. Flavor is toasted pumpkin, malts, spices, nutmeg. Well rounded, well crafted pumpkin beer. A bit lighter than ST Pumking, which makes this a bit more drinkable. Quite good.
